Booking open for Spring 2023 in London & Scotland
October 26, 2022


I'm delighted to be announcing dates for Spring 2023 Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain 5-day workshops - and particularly to be back in London, as well continuing to offer the workshop in the stunning surroundings of Scotland.

The 5-day workshop is an opportunity to give yourself the gift of time as well as have teacher and group support so you can immerse yourself in this intensive drawing course and learn the perceptual skills of drawing. You can find out more and read about previous participants experiences below.

Going forward I hope to be offering 1-2 courses a year in London. I will be returning to the Amadeus Centre in Maida Vale - however faced with increased running costs they have taken the opportunity to significantly increase their hire costs - nearly double to pre-pandemic - and so this is reflected in the course fee.

The course in Scotland is residential and gives you the opportunity to relax and recharge in beautiful surroundings on the shores of Loch Goil (just over an hour from Glasgow Airport). The course is held in my studio and so the group is small - a maximum of 4 - and you get to have the company of little Mac Black - my yorkipoo as a bonus! You will stay in Rowan House, the Five star rated B&B run by my husband and I.

Monday 13th February - Friday 17th February 2023
A non-residential course at the Amadeus Centre, Maida Vale, W9

Sunday 19th March - Saturday 25th March 2023
This residential course will be held in Carrick Castle, Lochgoilhead (about  70 minutes from Glasgow international airport). Loch Goil is part of Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park and is a fantastic area for walking, golf, fishing and boating.

In each 5-day workshop you will get:

  • 5 days of drawing
  • 35 hours of teaching
  • includes portfolio of drawing materials and unique Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain® tools to support your drawing (RSP £115)
  • Supportive and encouraging learning environment

"I learned that I CAN draw! Realistically, and from life! The physical evidence resides on the pages of the drawing pads in the portfolio (provided as part of the course). I honestly believed with a rock-solid certainty that it was not possible, and I was wrong. What a joy!"
Frank Edwards

The Studio at Rowan House.
"Rowan House provided a perfect venue and relaxing environment in which to learn to draw. The studio was well ventilated, clean, comfortable and bright. It was well lit and furnished appropriately, with individual desks and comfortable chairs (and a variety of cushions available, if required). The location, with its fantastic views of the loch and surrounding mountains, only enhanced what could be described as an ideal learning environment."
